Subject2.2.0: depmod sb.o: Device or resource busy

On both Alpha and i386 architectures, i can no longer use the (creativ
labs) soundcard.

It used to be `modprobe sound' in 2.0.n, it seems to be `modprobe sb' in

2.2.m now.

What i get, is:

$ modprobe -v sb
/sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.0/misc/soundcore.o
/sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.0/misc/sound.o
/sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.0/misc/uart401.o
/sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.0/misc/sb.o io=0x220 irq=7 dma16=5
mpu_io=0x330 io=0x220 irq=7 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
/lib/modules/2.2.0/misc/sb.o: init_module: Device or
resource busy
sound: Device or resource busy

$ lsmod
Module Size Used by
uart401 5588 0
sound 54408 0 [uart401]
soundcore 2084 3 [sound]
nfs 28264 6 (autoclean)
lockd 27844 1 (autoclean) [nfs]
sunrpc 47888 1 (autoclean) [nfs lockd]
3c509 5280 1 (autoclean)

Does anobody (Alan) know why there seems to be a device conflict? Is
the uart401 module using
sb's hardware?

I believe i have a genuine soundblaster, both for i386 and alpha.
